Within this cookbook, we are aiming for the highest caliber of flavor while adhering to the themes of nature, simplicity and the wild. To achieve this, we engineered our recipes with a few specifics. Things like not using artificial food dye. Natural coloring should be utilized as often as possible, even if this involves extracting pigments from certain ingredients just to add to later dishes. Blackberry purée will always beat out purple food coloring - we want to arm you with the wisdom of the natural alternatives. We also want to utilize fresh ingredients as natural and raw as possible. Don’t get us wrong, we don’t want you to go through the hassle of threshing your own wheat when you can just buy a pound of flour from a store, but if you want something special and a bit wilder, we are going to make you aware of it and more power to you for trying it. Our last tenant is one of simplicity. All of our recipes are straightforward to make. There’s nothing wrong with a baked apple recipe being just baking an apple with some brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon. A simple meal is often the best meal and we want you to have the courage to try it.
